2000 Canadian Para-Ski Championships - March 17-20, 2000|
|It's winter time, and for many, this means time to pack away the skydiving gear for another season and break out the skis. Of course, you are lucky if you live close to an all-season drop zone that flies year round, or if you can afford the luxury of travelling south to the warmer climes to get your jumps in. But what about the skydiver with a winter-style competitive urge? Perhaps you're wondering how to combine a great summer sport with a great winter sport and get helicopter jumps as well? Easy--take up para-skiing! On-the-slope landings give new meaning to the word, "accuracy"!
||The 2000 Canadian Para-Ski Championships at Mont Saint-Sauveur, 60 km north of Montreal in Canada, offer a great opportunity to show off your parachuting accuracy skills in front of a crowd of people, and demonstrate how you can carve up a ski slope as well! The Canadian Para-Ski Championships will feature two categories of competition --Giant Slalom and Parachuting Accuracy--with five different skill levels. If you want to have a great time in a great place you should check out the 2000 Canadian Para-Ski Championships. You can find their web page (in English and French) at the following addresses:|

60-Way Speed &
Last year of six competing teams, Z-Hills was the only team successful in completing the three rounds of the "Speed 100" competition. This year the organizers, Steve Woodford and Tim Wagner, have decided to cut down the number to a more logistically manageable 60-way Speed Sequential Competition. They received many emails from skydivers who liked the idea of a large formation speed event, but felt that 100 was too ambitious at the present time.
|So for 2000, it will be "SPEED 60". Already six drop zones have VERBALLY confirmed their participation: Defending team Z-Hills, Deland, Elsinore, Dallas, Eloy, Quincy, Perris, The Ranch--and other drop zones are expected to sign up as well.|
If your drop zone is capable of hosting a team, please contact Tim Wagner as soon as possible at email@example.com. Check out their web-site at http://www.Speed100.com for all rules ®ulations and the formations are posted.
